In response to queries received from potential transaction advisors, the DIPAM has clarified that since LIC’s stake would be sold along with that of the government’s, a single transaction advisor would manage the entire share sale process.

“The mandate received from CCEA is to off-load upto 100 per cent stake of GoI and LIC alongwith transfer of management control. However, the exact quantum is yet to be worked out. It will be determined, as we go through the transaction and ascertain investors’ interest, market appetite etc.

The DIPAM had last month invited bids from transaction advisors and legal firms for managing and advising on the strategic sale and transfer of management control in IDBI Bank.

As per the eligibility criteria outlined, the bidders should have advised at least one transaction of strategic disinvestment/ strategic sale/ M&A activities/ private equity investment transaction of the size of Rs 5,000 crore or more during the period from April, 2016 to March, 2021.

Insurance giant LIC had acquired controlling stake in IDBI Bank in January 2019.

Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman in her Budget for 2021-22 had said the process of privatisation of IDBI Bank would be completed in the current fiscal.

The government aims to mop up Rs 1.75 lakh crore in the current fiscal from minority stake sale and privatisation.
